Method

  • Pre-heat a wok over a medium to high heat.
  • Add the shallots and fish stock and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add prawns and cook for a further 30 seconds, then pour in the double cream, add the spinach and pasta and season.
  • Cook gently for 2 minutes so the sauce does not reduce too far – it should have a soupy consistency. 
  • Add the lobster meat (if using) peas, basil and chives with a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Taste and season again if necessary.
  • Serve.
